Hey I am Ron Jacobsohn with Ron’s World and today I want to talk to you about Dunkirk.
This Jonathan Nolan directed pic is nothing short from breathtaking.
Nolan was extremely tedious in portraying the story of the evacuation of the British Forces in World War II from the shores of the French harbor, Dunkirk, in a very historically accurate way. He shot the scenes with no less than six-thousand real life background actors at the actual place where the evacuation happened in early June of 1940.
The amazing thing about this movie is not the high paying actors that star in it but, for a refreshing change, the story and how a genius director immortalized it. In this non-linear narrative, the story is told in three perspectives with overlapping time periods: one week on land, one day at sea, and one hour in the air, all told in masterful visual storytelling, which keeps the audience gasping.
If you are looking for your standard Hollywood war movie, Dunkirk is definitely not it. Nonetheless, this is a spellbinding awe taking war movie, which will definitely set a new glass ceiling for the genre.
Although the story seems fairly uncomplicated at first, Dunkirk becomes a tour de force of what modern-day cinema is able to achieve… an instant classic… yet not without the help of a very big budget from a Hollywood studio. I happily give it a thumbs up.
